Since its debut in 1781, the building housing the Old Country Store in Moultonborough, NH, has been the site of not just a store but also town meetings, a library, a post office, a stage stop, and a museum. Considered to be among the oldest businesses of its kind in the country, the Old Country Store is certainly a beloved destination in the Lakes Region town of Moultonborough. The can’t-miss yellow building, with its welcoming wraparound porch and red shutters, is a fond memory for many a visitor. Tourists and locals alike spend time in the store perusing local goods and vintage items, while children (and adults, too) fill up baggies with bright penny candy. Wander the store’s long aisles, back rooms, and nooks, and you’ll find everything from Coca-Cola lunch boxes, road signs, and coffee mugs to aged cheddar, maple syrup, and every flavor of jelly and jam imaginable. Upstairs, there’s a small museum full of history, antique goods, and local treasures. Take some time in the Old Country Store, and you’ll likely leave with some fun goods you never knew you needed, a deeper sense of local history, and, yes, a bag of candy.
